Did you make a FAT16 filesystem
and used mkdosfs to apply the filesystem on it?
Don't forget when using
:
dd if=fedora.iso of=/dev/sdX bs=8M
to type /dev/sdX and not
/dev/sdX1 or /dev/sdX2 etc.

Hi,

Can you explain witch page you talking about?
Btw. I suggest look for
LiveUSB creator, and run it from most of the
available OS-es. It solves to
you the task that you
desire.

I have never had much luck with that dd method. I do the following
and have not had any problems with this method since I started using
it a year or two back:

First I plug the usbstick in - and check the device name by looking at
/var/log/messages - let's say the device is seen to be /dev/sdb1.
Then *as root* I do the following (the # is the root prompt so the
command is after the "# ":
# umount /dev/sdb1
# livecd-iso-to-disk --reset-mbr
/home/mike/Documents/install_stuff/f14-beta/Fedora-14-Beta-i386-DVD.iso
/dev/sdb1

If you have an oddball file structure on the stick you can reformat it
at the same time by adding the "--format" flag to the above command
(without the quotes of course)
Amend the path to the iso file to suit the location and name of your
install iso, and the correct device name for your stick.
This needs the livecd-tools package installed so ensure it is there
before you start.

This works flawlessly for me in f14, and it did in f13 also. When I
boot from the stick it just boots to the installer and off I go.

Default Bootable usb stick with the fedora install

/partially off topic

Guys,

Just an technical question - is it possible to add next to memtest and
such utils our liveusb creator as an boot menu option? I mean, the
user loads the disc, and If he/she choosing this option - the ISO
copies to RAM along with liveusb creator - and the user could write
out to anywhere - to the target device.....

The easiest way to create a liveusb of a linux distribution is to use
UNetbootin. You can get it at:

http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/

This allows you to produce a Live USB or Live CD of about 50 Linux
versions (including Fedora 14). Then boot Liveusb (or LiveCD) and choose
the option to download the distribution onto your computer.

Actually yum install unetbootin is easier!

That's exactly what I would recommend. It has always worked!!
Just be sure you have done:

yum -y install livecd-tools

otherwise, you will not find the command
livecd-iso-to-disk
